This is the last week of the semester. When we return from break, we will stat a new semester with new classes and new artists. So here is a look at a few of the projects that are sneaking in at the last minute and wrapping up the semester.
This piece is one of the Redo projects. The original piece was a painting of a flower. For her Redo, she decided to try her hand at site specific perspective. The images are painting different sizes which are placed at different distances from each other. You can only see the entire image if you look at it from one specific location.
These are so fun! Who doesn't like a cardboard wrapped yarn dinosaur! not only did she make a bunch, she also taught several other students how to make them.
This fully functional bag was created from cut paper. Unfortunately, I only captured these poor quality photos before she took it home. These photos don't do it justice.
That's a wrap! See you next semester!
When Cymya ask me for the spray paint after this portrait was done I was a little concerned. However, she did a great job masking off the painting with tape and paper.
When Zach (who sat in on class) asked for a drawing lesson, M2 showed him how she goes about drawing portraits. It's great when the student become the teacher. Especially to a kid who isn't even in art class ;)
When Dion first created a stencil, it was a single image. After he made the first one, he played with the stencil, creating this multi imaged work. Play is an important part of the art making process.
When a student asks for a needle and thread...
When a student asks if she can bring her skateboard to school so she can paint it.
When a student totally redesigns a pair of shoes including painting them black.
When you have some newspaper, cardboard and paper mache' on the table.
